Groups File Petition to List Gray Wolf under California Endangered Species Act
Posted in Listing

As Dean Kuipers reported in the Los Angeles Times, on February 27, four environmental groups petitioned the California Fish and Game Commission to list the gray wolf (Canis lupis) as endangered under the California Endangered Species Act.  The petition is available here (pdf).  As I previously reported, a lone gray wolf briefly crossed the border from Oregon to California in December 2011.  The last documented gray wolf in the State prior to that time was seen in 1924.

The status of the gray wolf under the federal Endangered Species Act is described here (pdf).
